I have been an Adult Nurse for twelve years, have experience in acute and rehabilitative settings holding a keen interest in Trauma and Orthopaedics, student support and clinical teaching. Working as both a Nurse and Clinical Educator in Musculoskeletal services at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust I was appointed as a full-time Lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University in January 2020. I love teaching and am privileged to work with students throughout their development to become part of this amazing profession. I am a proud and passionate Nurse and became a lecturer to spread the word of this wonderful career; to inspire the future generation of nurses. I thoroughly enjoy both the teaching and discussions my role allows me to have with the students. Seeing the students gain confidence and develop is extremely rewarding to me. I am keen to promote and develop clinical skills training with a view to improve outcomes and safety for individuals as well as encourage my students to further their development. My role involves supporting students as their Academic Advisor, facilitating learning through teaching and marking assessments. I also support the recruitment process of students to both BSc and MSc Nursing cohorts.
My specialist areas of interest are learning material innovation, recruitment within the Nursing and Midwifery department, clinical skills training, patient assessment and managing care, and student support and development.
